Mystery

Knock Knock (Detectives Lockhart and Green Book 1) by Chris Merritt

This was a very different book than I had anticipated. Usually, when a story has so many diversions and takes this much time to get to its point, I give up. Surprisingly enough, there was something about this story that kept me going, albeit much slower than I usually read.

The villain is given a voice quite frequently, but our path is littered with so many possible suspects that it is almost impossible to pinpoint with any accuracy what the turn of events could be. We have a police team, each with their own backstory who all have their own pet solutions. Each dissects their individual suspect, our primary focus is on Lexi the shrink and Lockhart the chief detective. The number of false leads was almost dizzying since I kept thinking something else would happen each time a twist occurred. This involves murdered women, an icky crowd of men venting their frustration online and personal vendettas. There are a lot more explanations than I usually get and sometimes it helped.

I recommend it to those who like police procedural, where we get a complete view of all procedures and internal bickering.

I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
